This tub base has me thinking of when I was little, hanging out at the yacht club when everyone was preparing their boats to be launched for the new sailing season. I'd sit on the cradle of our boat (that's the metal framing the boat sits on when it's stored for the winter on dry land) and watch the crews setting up the docks in the water. The air would always smell of teak oil and fiberglass. To this day I still love those smells. Looking at this tub surround made me think of those docks. This look feels very masculine to me, perfect for a bachelor pad. Thought I wish I could steal that faucet for my next tub, it's the perfect spout shape! I've been looking for one like this.
